The HoloNet - HoSS News and Announcements

May the Fourth Be With You!

HoSS presents SSE5: Into the Maw

http://heroscapers.com/hoss/Thread i...obaSarlacc.jpg


"Don't move, Lando!"

"Wait! I thought you were blind!"

"It's alright. I can see a lot better. Don't move!"

"A little higher! Just a little higher!"


Will Han save Lando from the Mighty Sarlacc?
Will Boba Fett escape from its clutches? Or will he be digested over a thousand years?
Can the Sarlacc eat B1 Battle Droids faster than they can be Mass Produced?
Can Darth Vader with his Royal Guard defeat the Sarlacc, or will they require Darth Maul's help?
Will the Ewoks manage to set off a Log Trap Special Attack on the Sarlacc and its Tentacles?
What other scenarios will you play out?

The Holocron of Sarlacc Pit

The Sarlacc is quite unique and plays differently than traditional Heroscape figures. We feel it is a neat addition to the HoSS universe, and we hope you enjoy it too!

P.S. - As usual, in addition to the pdf linked in the Sarlacc thread, the card images are also available in the X-2 Custom Card Printer.

For the map contest are you looking for scenario based maps at all? I'd be all up in that business.
If so is there a chance that I could have access to the Units to come in the Master Set so I could make some fun figure based scenarios like in the SOTM and DND set? If not, sadness but fine.

I'd do the play testing if I had the time and sometimes it's hard to find opponents.

You can do a solo playtest. Doing this eliminates differing skill levels, and if you do it using this method http://heroscapers.com/community/showthread.php?t=39769, you don't even have to set up or tear down maps.

After our release, we'll have a community section that will allow you to create whatever scenarios you'd like to share with the community. There's a lot of potential with scenarios and HoSS. I look forward to what you can create.

Thanks, HS Guy. You took the words right out of my mouth. When I playtest, I only play solo. It completely takes away strategic advantage of one player over another. It's easy to know what the other guy is thinking when you are the other guy. :D

So then for the contest would tournament maps be better?

Probably, as they want balanced maps.

We will be releasing the rules for our map contest in the next couple of days in a separate thread (we'll put a link here). I believe we may be looking for some competitive and casual maps, but don't hold me to that.

Well, it's Episode 4, so you should be able to make some guesses about who will be in it and be pretty close. So how about if you cook up a map and scenario with that in mind, and if it looks good, we'll consider giving you a peek at the units for inclusion in the scenario. A fan created scenario in our Master Set would definitely be a cool addition.

Edit: There are some hints if you look in the Welcome to HoSS Thread

I'm willing to do the map design. I don't have time to playtest.
